Deadly Sorrow

The Republic of Deadly Sorrow is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, frequent executions, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed population of 3.451 billion Deadly Sorrowians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order also on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 33.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Deadly Sorrowian economy, worth 151 trillion dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 43,968 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

All-natural foods are becoming a major fad, the saying 'break a leg' is now taken literally, a ban on unsolicited cold calling in all forms is in effect, and collisions between bicycles and carnival floats are on the rise. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Deadly Sorrow's national animal is the turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Deadly Sorrow is ranked 50,720th in the world and 2nd in Mane Upod Nos for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,062.51 Tourists Per Hour.
